a door

Renovations are almost complete; the only missing piece is the shower door.

Today the new bathroom door was installed. With the old shower removed there was wall space to support a barn door instead of the more typical hinged door. I chose a door with a shaded glass insert. It allows some light to show through while still providing privacy.

The barn door was a good decision; I like it!

As I walked in the woods yesterday I noticed green. Trees are sprouting small light green leaves while ground plants are growing larger.

in the woods

Yesterday was my first (but not last!) visit to the Andres Institute of Art in Brookline, NH. It's a sculpture park containing many pieces of art scattered through the woods on a 140 acre property, a delight for wandering.

viola sororia

I love the delicate (and tiny) flowers of spring. Viola sororia always tempt me to walk closer.

paint by reflections

Finding reflections in still water always makes me stop and look. Nature paints beautiful pictures.

to MidCoast Maine

Clear blue skies and warming temperatures drew me to Reid State Park in Georgetown, Maine on Saturday. It was a good morning for a walk by the ocean.

on the street

Here are a few residents on the street in Portland, Maine.

hardwood floors :: refinished

I headed out early Friday morning with instructions to stay away (from home) until sometime today.

Hardwood covers most of the first floor and the stairs to the second floor. The hardwood was refinished over the last 2 days, sanded and then treated with 3 coats of polyurethane.

I returned home today to find shining floors, clean and fresh.
